In Jim Fossel’s Aug. 23 column, his assumption that elected leaders are “less likely to be asked about it (the Central Maine Power corridor) by constituents on a day-to-day basis if it’s not being voted on this year” and that it will ease leaders’ ability “to explain their votes on bills related to the project outside the heat of a referendum campaign” doesn’t consider the fact that Mainers are completely outraged that decisions made about the destructive CMP corridor have often sided with foreign corporations over the citizens of Maine.
